About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Sunshine for River of Creativity

 Good Morning All

The first challenge for River of Creativity is


I played around with my Oxide inks, which I should do more often as I enjoyed it.

Then, very simply, stamped using a wood mount Penny Black 3602K Dotted Petals.

The words are stickers from Clarity which I bought in the members sale, I had always wanted them so treated myself when they were half price.

I added afew of Johns (JND) tiny butterflies and dragonflies from  his early sets.

I painted the flower after stamping with Distress inks, never done this before but really happy with how it turned out.

There are some wonderful makes by the DT and we all have very different ways of crafting, very diverse - Stamping, Mixed Media etc.
So do pop over and take a look.

What a gorgeous creation, so warm and lovely colours!

Sorry I haven't been around to comment much of late, life and Covid swept over us and I've been trying to cope to the best of my ability. I hope you don't feel that I have ignored you cause that wasn't my intention. I will try to up my blogging game, I promise.
